      A HUNTING WE WILL GO

      Dean Vincent Carter returns to bookstores this week, with his
      much-anticipated second novel. The Hunting Season is a
      bloodthirsty tale about werewolves - Owoooo!...

      A DEATHLY COVER

      It's awful, isn't it? - The Gnome thinks the newly-revealed Harry Potter 
      cover is a rotten creation. This is the final Potter book, fer crying out loud. 
      It's called "The Deathly Hallows". Surely something more atmospheric 
      was in order. Something dark, deadly and delicious as Harry reaches his
      final destination? Oh, well. At the end of the day, it's only a cover.
      But - oh - what a missed oppurtunity...

      WHAT'S THE SECRET?

      The Black Book of Secrets is proving a popular read. But
      if you're after a collectable edition you'll need to move quickly.
      Signed First Editions seem to be few and far between, and the
      ones we've found so far are going up and up in price - touching
      £20 - £30 or more. Better get 'em whilst you can...

DARKSIDE WINS

      Tom Becker's Darkside has just picked up the Waterstone's Children's
      Book Prize for 2007. Becker's creepy tale involves a young lad who
      discovers a macabre underworld inhabited by werewolves and vampires.
      Oh, and collectors should note, this winning tale was published
      straight to softback - so you won't find any hardback editions
      out there!...

        TORAK IS OUTCAST

      Michelle Paver has posted a New Year's message her official fan site,
      in which she confirm the titles of the fourth chronicle of Ancient
      Darkness (the series started wirh Wolf Brother). It's to be called
      "Outcast". But we'll have to wait until September to actually read 
      the thing - Grr!


      29/01/07



      

      PRINCE OF FOOLS

      Sebastian Darke is here, with his wisetalking Buffalope, midget
      warrior and moody Princess in tow. Big things are expected of
      Philip Caveney's creation, and a sequel is already in the pipeline.
      The author has also been busy signing 4000 - yep, that's
      four, oh, oh, oh - editions, so keep your eyes pealed for 'em in
      your favourite bookstore very soon...

      04/01/07



      STONEWALLET
  

      It appears that Charlie Fletcher's Stoneheart has been snapped up
      by collectors in double-quick time. The title is already on its fourth printing,
      and an injury to the author has prevented him from embarking on a
      promotional tour. That means the few signed first editions "out there"
      are already hitting the £40+ mark on eBay and its ilk. Is the jump in
      value a temporary thing? - We'll just have to wait and see...

      STONEHEART

      Charlie Fletcher's Stoneheart is just about to hit UK stores. The story
      follows a group of kids who are amazed to find London's famouse statues
      coming to life, and it's a much-anticipated Autumnal release. Indeed
      a film deal with Paramount was secured before the book was
      even published...

      THE BOOK GNOME KNOWS...

      Well, he probably doesn't, but today marks the launch of this here
      guide to the best in British fantasy reads, for Big Kids and Little Kids alike.
      Okay, so there are only three reviews to kickstart the site with - but, hey,
      a Gnome has to start somewhere!

      Now the Gnome's a busy chap. In his other guise, he's something of a
      Hound, and that other site takes up an awful amount of time. But
      slowly, ever so surely, this place should grow to encompass a whole
      range of good reads and a wealth of good book news. And who knows,
      maybe this little place will eventually rival it's bigger, badder
      predecessor...?
